Day 843: Daily Fantasy

Yesterday, on my way to work, I saw this:

Here are some of my daily fantasies:

  • Kindness is as valued and rewarded as ambition is.
  • People have room  to experience and express tears, fears, disappointments,  AND joys.
  • We learn to focus more on the gifts of the present, letting go of regrets about the past and anxieties about the future.
  • Accomplishments and possibilities get as much attention as problems, mistakes, and limitations.
  • I feel more secure, daily, about all my blogging photos and words staying where I put them.  
  • Asking for support from each other is never seen as “weak.”
  • People get enough of what they need each day, including water, chocolate,  or anything else.
  • Each of the four seasons in New England, USA,  lasts the  full three months (instead of a certain cold and unnamed season getting more air time than the other three).

Here are some daily fantasies I saw yesterday, as I tripped the light fantastic:



Another daily fantasy of mine: that you express whatever you choose,  in a comment below.

Here are Tears for Fears describing a daily fantasy for lots of people, live:

Is that true? Does everybody want to rule the world?

Fantastic thanks to all who helped me create this fantasy of a post today and thanks to you — of course! — for being here.

  1. You have an eye and a mind for pulling together photos that capture both my imagination and my sometimes whimsical mind. Good creative stuff from you – I enjoy it.

  2. I love that solitary white chair sitting alone looking at the river. This post is full of hope through its words and photos. And of course chocolate. Have a great day Ann

  3. This post gets a huge *like* from me if only for the use of the expression “trip the light fantastic”. For me it always invokes such a feeling of unbound joy.

    One of favourite photos is the car with the baseball player decal and the reflection of colours in the back window. I love clean reflections like that … almost an illusion of another dimension 😉

  4. Great variation of thoughts and inages. And a very nice way to end the day.

  5. I look forward to the day when our positive fantasies come true!
    I’m off to buy chocolate now 😉

  6. I especially love it when you take us to parks and bridges. Even more than the chocolate!

  7. looking spring-like
    through those
    lenses 🙂

  8. I love the images of the Charles River. One of my favorite series of books is set in Boston and the main character used to row the river in the earlier novels. It’s lovely to see it for myself.

  9. Oh there’s so much of it here too – the construction I mean – hate getting in a traffic jam at 11pm.

    • There’s usually no traffic here at 11 o’clock and — thank goodness — that’s no fantasy. Thanks for driving over here today, Jay.

  10. Ann, your post immediately brought the following quote to mind: When I was young, I used to admire intelligent people; as I grow older, I admire kind people. –Abraham Joshua Heschel

    I love this post and could easily live in a world like this. ❤

  11. Everybody wants a bowl of Hershey’s miniature chocolates, Ann. The heck with ruling the world. Sugar Free, please. I like your photo proof that winter did go from Boston. Blooming flowers and trees, hooray. No longer do they need to be a daily fantasy.

  12. “Well, luckily with animation, fantasy is your friend.”-
    Steven Spielberg

  13. “Without this playing with fantasy no creative work has ever yet come to birth. The debt we owe to the play of the imagination is incalculable-“

    Carl Jung

    • I couldn’t imagine a better combination for my blog: Maria and Jung!

      • Thanks Ann, well when you remember what he said about the archetypes, their evidence of them existing (according to him) were the works of art in different cultures. He then stated that there were similar patterns in each culture; this is why his archetype theory is still going strong with some people. You have an archetype of strength which comes from a tiger-like spirit.

      • I couldn’t possibly fantasize a better comment, Maria. Roar!

  14. Ah, you have caught a number of my fantasies. I do fantasize about crossing a bridge into a more peaceful, supportive world.
